    Terms of the deal were not disclosed for Jones, who played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last season.

    Jones returned 12 punts for 143 yards, with a long of 35, with Tampa Bay in 2007 before having his year cut short with a knee injury that landed him on injured reserve on October 24.

    "Mark's versatility was very attractive to us," San Diego general manager A.J. Smith said. "He's an experienced NFL punt returner and a solid player who will raise the level of competition in our camp."

    Jones, 27, has 117 career returns for 1,017 yards - an average of 8.7 yards - since being drafted in the seventh round in 2004 by the Buccaneers.
